Noted film and television actor, and all-around car guy, James Garner passed away on Saturday. He was 86.
Noted for his television roles ranging from “Maverick” to “The Rockford Files”, and film roles that included: “Grand Prix”, “The Great Escape”, “They Kill Their Masters”, and “The Americanization of Emily”, Garner was also one heck of a driver. He raced a Ford Bronco and a super-modified Olds 442 called the “Goodyear Grabber” in the Baja 1000. Garner also drove the pace car at the Indianapolis 500 three times, in 1975, 1977 & 1985.
